Vazhakka Payar Upperi | Kaya Achinga Mezhukkupuratti | Long Beans & Raw Plantain Stir Fry


 I am always in love with this veggie Achinga Payaru. It's called by different names in different parts of the world like Thattai Payar or Long beans or String beans. Make a simple stir fry out of it & it would just taste awesome with steamed rice & a kootan/gravy. Or have it as a side for the night kanji/rice porridge, that would also taste divine ! I learned this combination stir fry from my Mil. It's very easy to make & healthy & tasty too.. So let's see how it's done !


Recipe Source: Mil

Serves: 2~3 persons

I Took: 25 minutes



I Used:


Long Beans/Achinga Payar
- 1 cup - cut into long pieces
Raw Plantain/Vazhakka - 1 cup - diced
Green Chilly - 2 no
Curry leaves - A sprig
Mustard - ½ tsp
Oil - 2 tsp
Salt - As Needed

The Way:

  1. Heat oil in a pan. Splutter the mustard. Add slited green chilly & saute
  2. Add the diced raw plantain & saute for a minute or two
  3. Add the cut long beans & curry leaves & salt, mix well. Cook covered over medium fire till the vegetables are done. Give an occasional stir to make sure they do not get burned
Pair up with steamed rice & a gravy of your choice or rice porridge.

Cheers,
Chitz
